Textural Monochromatic Layers

Textural layers

September 26 2015

Hello! Ugh, I cannot get over how much I love this cream-colored, lace dress. The romantic lace pattern, neutral color and 1970s-inspired bell sleeves of the dress make it absolutely irresistible. I decided to focus on textural layers with this look and stuck to a monochromatic color scheme. The lace of the dress is such a beautiful texture by itself that I figured layering a couple more luxe textured pieces with it would only add to the beauty. 

I started layering by slipping on a long, white faux fur vest with the dress. A little over a month ago, I picked this faux fur vest up at Ashby in Richmond for about $30. Even though this is only the second time that I've worn it, I can tell it's going to be one of my fave pieces this season. Just look how wonderful it looks in the outfit above! Besides loving the juxtaposition of the two feminine textures, I fell in love with the way the cream color of the dress and the white color of the dress accentuated each other. 

To strengthen the aesthetic that I had created by styling the white faux fur vest and cream-colored lace dress together, I added another slightly different shade of beige and knit texture to the look with this cozy scarf. The combination of the three unique textures created a very rich, luxe appeal. 

I kept the rest of the color in the look neutral with a pair of tan, pointy-toed Jeffrey Campbell heels and a couple golden necklaces. A pop of lipstick and a leopard print crossbody bag completed the look. 

On an unrelated note, my sister is currently raising money for St. Jude's and plans on shaving her head for the cause this upcoming November. Check out and support her campaign here. Remember, every dollar donated counts!
